Picture or image of a wolf – this can be a photo, an image from the internet or a picture
Take the hairs and twist them together, pop them in the envelope and write on the front of it. The words should come from your heart but something along the lines of “family bonds”.
Put the envelope underneath the image of the wolf and keep it on your altar or tacked to the family notice board.
